A Waldorf school impulse in Grahamstown, looking for a teacher

We are a family based in Grahamstown, recently relocated from Cape Town. Our close community in Cape Town is very connected to the Waldorf school movement, and to anthroposophy. Our son Jude attended a Waldorf kindergarten (Rosy Cave, and then Rainbow Bridge, in Lakeside).

In Grahamstown there are currently no Waldorf schools, and in fact no alternative primary schools at all (our nearest option is a Reggio Emilia inspired school in Kenton). Having personally experienced both mainstream and Waldorf schools, we feel deeply that the child-centred, creative approach to education that Waldorf offers is one of the greatest gifts for our children, and for the world.
Many like-minded parents in Grahamstown are home schooling their children, but we do not want to do that. We feel strongly called to set up a small Waldorf cottage school, starting with a Class One in 2018, for our son but also for other children in this community. There are a number of parents who are very interested already.

We are imagining starting with a Class One class of about 7 – 10 children in 2018, and would ideally like to find a teacher who can commit to staying with this class from Class 1 to Class 3 at least. We would like to set up a classroom where there is lots of garden space available, for gardening and outdoor classroom time, and feel confident that we can secure such a space. We also envision this growing into a ‘community’ school, that engages openly with the town of Grahamstown, through offering financial support to children who otherwise could not afford the fees, by ensuring that isiXhosa is learnt as an integral part of the children’s education, by participating in community initiatives like the Grahamstown morning market, etc. We are not expecting the teacher to cover all of these aspects, but foresee drawing on the wider community of parents and others to contribute to the activities of the school.

We are looking for a qualified Waldorf teacher with an adventurous and creative spirit, who would be interested in relocating to the beautiful town of Grahamstown for a few years, and who would be excited by the opportunity to work with a group of committed parents in setting up a new Waldorf initiative.
